hi all,

I just tuned in the History Channel and there he was, for brief moment.
Amazing, that in the 30 years I've followed his stunt flying with
Rockwell, he hasn't aged one bit--he looked 80ish in the 1970's and he
still looks just as old!

Thanks for any replies

Omg I don't know if this will work but My Uncle Harry (BUD) Dirgo, Omaha Nebr. Passed away March 12th.2017 It says in his obit he was a member of the Quiet Birdmen. He was 92 years old and had been retired for years. I just thought I would try to notify someone in the Quiet Birdmen which seems virtually impossible!
If at all possible can someone pass the information along.
